NOVATO — SPG Solar, which designs and installs commercial photovoltaic energy systems, plans to move its headquarters to Petaluma to have room to grow, particularly in product development.
SPG Solar (800-815-5562, spgsolar.com) in late October signed a five-year lease with Napa-based PB&J Acquisitions for 25,400 square feet of warehouse, office and research-and-development space at 1039 N. McDowell Blvd. in Petaluma's McDowell Business Center. The company plans to relocate its Novato headquarters and consolidate a Sacramento warehouse into the new facility by the end of this year, according to Chief Executive Officer Doug May.
About 65 employees, including some remote workers and salespeople, will be making the move. The headquarters will have room to growth, he said.
"This is a strategic business move for us, so we looked extensively for just the right location," Mr. May said. "Petaluma gives us the best possible combination of the right space, a strong business community, and a growing renewable energy sector."
One such Petaluma company is Enphase Energy, which expanded its headquarters to nearly 100,000 square feet a year ago and went public in late March.
